future bing - may 16, 2012

my mediated persona

This episode became a fan favourite for Future Bing's deconstruction of how vloggers represent themselves on screen. Although PBFB is, by design, a lot more transparent than most projects, it is still edited and cherry-picked. One of the greatest differences between PB and FB is FB's enhanced editing style- something that makes him more engaging and exciting to watch, but that can also be used to change meaning or hide things from the audience. PB hides very little precisely because he is less experienced at it, a point that FB very tactlessly makes at the end of the video.

This is something I discuss in several later episodes, and even in vlogs after PBFB.
